For fans of WALL-E and Toy Story, comes a heart-warming, humorous adventure about a young robot trying to find its way home. Beautifully illustrated throughout, BOOT is a special book you will want to treasure and share. When toy robot, Boot, wakes up at a scrapyard, it has no idea how it got there and why it isn’t with its owner, Beth. It only has two and a half glitchy memories, but it knows it was loved, which means something important to humans. Boot soon realises its emotions make it different to other robots, who just function and don’t think. Boot is scared but tries to be brave, which is hard when its screen keeps showing a wobbly, worried face. Luckily Boot meets Noke and Red – other ‘advanced’ robots who have learned to survive in secret. With its new friends by its side, Boot is determined to find Beth and the gang set off on a dangerous adventure. Everything Boot thought it knew about the world is changing and things aren’t as simple as it remembers . . . BOOT is a story that will take you by surprise and make you think about the world around you.
12 IN 1 SOLAR HYDRAULIC CONSTRUCTION KIT Building robots have never been so much fun! With the 12 in 1 Solar and Hydraulic Construction Kit, you can create and transform your robot into 12 different animals and vehicles using the power of solar and water!
Combining STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) ideas and processes, the solar and hydraulic construction kit allows children to explore and learn the benefits of alternate energy, including the functional mechanisms involved in robotic movement and modelling.
Better yet, the 12 in 1 Solar & Hydraulic Construction kit does not require batteries to operate! The modelling involved in the creation of these robots is based on the real-life characteristics and movement of animals and vehicles. Children and explore these functions and learn how they’re mimicked in robotic form or kids can use their imagination to create an entirely new robot of their own. The options are endless when you’re building robots!
